Number 67 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!
Delicious stuff, this old vine Malbec bursts with intense, peppery fruit. Some of the best Malbec in the world.
The Lulunta Vineyard was planted more than 60 years ago with a density of about 5,700 vines/ha. (2,300 vines/acres). The soil, of sand and shallow clay over a stony subsoil, allows for excellent drainage. Trellising is over three wires at a height of 1.75 meters. The results of ideal soil and climate condition together with meticulous pruning, irrigation and canopy management are low yields of small berries with extremely concentrate flavors and round velvety tannins.
